Shayan Safar, Hollywood stuntman, talks about his childhood dream to become a superhero; about overcoming his fear of failing; and about the Baha’i principle of facing your fears to refine the gold of the human character in the fire of tests and trials. By engaging in new and sometimes uncomfortable activities, Shayan says, he found ways to develop new brain cells, new skills and new gratitude for life.

    Your talk has come at the perfect time for me. Thanks for the ammunition to deal with a barrage of recent fearful situations! It also made me remember that we all have fears and how connected we are. You did an excellent job Shayan!! Thanks.
